*Extended Deadline for Abstracts: January 30th, 2006*

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?

Historicizing Aesthetics/Aestheticizing History:
Theory, Practice and Pedagogy of (Un)Making History

it, that is to say, for the sake of life and of action…
                                - Nietzsche, Untimely Meditations
